I don't know that I totally understand what is being said. There is an emulator built into Goldeneye and those ROMs are playable that you listed, but only if you patch it? I'm feeling slightly dumb after reading the article...but if it's what I think it is ... very cool!

This is neat. I'll have to try this out later.

just tried this on my 64drive (flash cart) and i love it. the game doesn't seem to have sounds but the controls seems to be valid. you have to press L+R (and another button combo) on controller port 3 to unlock these hidden games. then you would control the game chosen in port 1. awesome unlockable patched. :)

Oh look, one of my forums is linking to another of my forums and it's not posted by me. That was unexpected.

On topic, I'm genuinely surprised this hasn't been found by now.

Sweet, that reminds me of the fun times I had playing Jetpac on Donkey Kong 64.
